More information about the "Paulo Freire 100th Anniversary: Celebrating his legacy in education":

This year marks the centenary of the birth of one of the greatest thinkers in education: Paulo Freire. Paulo Freire’s work has globally influenced people working in education, community development, community health and many other fields. In particular, his best-known book Pedagogy of the Oppressed is considered to be one of the foundational texts of critical pedagogy, advocating a pedagogy with a new relationship between teacher, student, and society. Freire developed an approach to education that links the identification of issues with positive actions for change and development.

In partnership with other interested study groups, the Cambridge Latin American Research in Education Collective (CLAREC) aims to promote collective discussions about education as a means of social transformation based on the thoughts and works of Paulo Freire. Freire’s work has contributed to reflection in the social sciences, and also to the debates involving economics, politics, culture and critical social issues such as gender, race and environmental justice. This includes debates upon the role of education such as how issues such as power, politics, coloniality, justice and social action are related to education as a means of social transformation. We hope to organize activities that promote a democratic and vibrant space where different views and audiences within the Faculty of Education/University of Cambridge and beyond can reflect and debate. In this series of activities, perspectives in support or questioning his arguments are welcome so we can explore together the legacies of his work. 

The events will take place online between the 1st and 12th November, 2021.

This celebration involves a set of varied events to celebrate Paulo Freire’s centenary such as seminars, talks, reading groups, conferences, workshops, roundtables. The events are planned to be in-person (if possible), with additional virtual broadcasting so that they can be watched by an external audience.

Inspired by Paulo Freire’s arguments, these initiatives will contribute to the development of deeper critical thinking among students and academics at the Faculty of Education and beyond, as well as galvanise people into some concrete actions to positively transform contexts of oppression. Written and visual materials with reflections emerging from these activities will also be produced and displayed around the Faculty of Education and/or published online (e.g. faculty’s, CLAREC’s, and other collaborating groups’ webpages). Moreover, some abstracts presented at the Student Conference will be published in a digital format to be made freely available.
